Art & Design

Curriculum Intent for Art & Design

Our aim is for art to stimulate creativity, confidence and imagination. Through our programmes of study, children are taught to understand and learn from great artists, whose work they mimic and use as inspiration. 

Children develop fundamental skills in areas such as sketching, needlework and painting then create their individual pieces, which have their own originality. 

A final, key principle taught within our Art and Design topics is to be able to both evaluate and respect the work of others including work of classmates, people from our community and artists within the wider world.
